>You can't just add "space" to stuff and pretend that that's going to be the next big thing because "Space" and Daddy Elon whispering sweets nothings into your ear. If you actually do the math and look at the feasibility you'll notice that not only do none of these space mining and tourism visions to defraud investors add up.

I'm not going to engage with this. This right here establishes that you have made up your mind. You have decided that SpaceX/Elon Musk is lying and that the whole industry is out to grift us. There is no point to spinning my wheels and sifting through my sources when your just going to disregard them anyway. I don't have time for it.

Agree to disagree. Have a great day

Nor are you going to engage your other fallacies I take it? Like the actual costs? Or your inane comparison of space exploration with naval travel? Or how Moore's laws is supposed to factor into this at all?

You're simply salty because I'm calling you out on your nonsensical claims.

How is any of this up to debate, given their claims regarding Starship, Mars colonies, Starlink paying for all of this? "The whole industry" you are imagining here doesn't exist as far "Space [Tourism/Mining/Manufacturing]" is concerned, and those CGI space hotels have been debunked numerous times as attempts to defraud investors becasue they are not feasible on basically every level. This is hardly the first time this has been pointed out on this subreddit.

My man, if you can't back up your claims you have no arguments.
